Xfce "This release incorporates major changes to the core of the Xfce desktop environment and hopefully succeeds in fulfilling a number of long time requests. Among the most notable updates is that we have ported the entire Xfce core (Thunar, xfdesktop and thunar-volman in particular) from ThunarVFS to GIO, bringing remote filesystems to the Xfce desktop. The panel has been rewritten from scratch and provides better launcher management and improved multi-head support. The list of new panel features is too long to mention in its entirety here. Thanks to the new menu library garcon (formerly known as libxfce4menu, but rewritten once again) we now support menu editing via a third-party menu editor such as Alacarte (we do not ship our own yet). Our core libraries have been streamlined a bit, a good examplle being the newly introduced libxfce4ui library which is meant to replace libxfcegui4."

One of the best environments around

I still haven't tried HaikuOS, but coming from a BeOS experience (and thus searching for the old "truly responsive" Amiga feeling), XFCE is the environment that pleased me the most in the last years.
I will now probably install Linux on my netbook again.
(Being lazy due to my new netbook having Windows 7 pre-installed)
